Bring the whole family along to see the animals at Zoologico de Cali, sheltering a mix of native and exotic animals, including flamingoes, Amazonian tapirs, white tigers, pythons, and kangaroos. Step into the impressive butterfly enclosure with a small piece of fruit in your hand and watch as the beautiful insects swoop down to eat from your palm. Shedding its old reputation for dirty cages and poor standards, the zoo is now known for taking good care of its animals and providing them with adequate enclosures. Put Zoologico de Cali and other Cali attractions into our Cali road trip website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautiful tour, very well set and some animals. I really liked the walk, the part of Australia, the souvenirs, the aquarium, everything was great, worth going.

  • An immense space well wooded and very well cared for, varied diversities with exotic animals... Some have no giraffes and elephants but the Bengal tiger and White walk together... Has lemures, iguanas walking freely and the kangaroo that sits very close and walking between us in a space... Lovely Place

  • It's always nice to visit. Kids have a lot of fun. I recommend arriving early, as after noon the entrance and parking is somewhat congested; it also takes advantage of the cooler weather in the morning.

  • A wild selection of birds, fishes, reptiles, lions, tigers, zebras, ostriches, zebra, turtles, kangaroo, monkey's plus many many more. Very family friendly. Good choice of ice cream, cafes and restaurants in the zoo. Very affordable prices for entry 20,900OPesos for 1 adult. Staff are polite and friendly. Spent a good 3 hours.
  • The Lions and Tigres were great! And the kids liked the 'red butt monkeys🐒'. Took us about 3.5 hours to see everything.
  • Great expression of Colombia's plants and animals. The setup was first class and there are plenty of educational experiences to be had. I was impressed.
  • It’s a great place. Especially for kids. Just a bit of a labyrinth. The map and the signs don’t really help.
  • There were some interesting exhibits but the map they gave me was almost incomprehensible and there was not enough signage inside the park. I'm pretty sure there were some exhibits I didn't see because I couldn't figure out how to get to them. I think most of the butterflies must have escaped from the butterfly exhibit because I only counted 10 in the whole thing. If you have some time to kill it might be worthwhile to go to this zoo but if you're pressed for time I would probably skip it.
